The 2011 Advocare Independence Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana, will pit a pair of 7-5 teams against each other.

The Missouri Tigers of the Big 12 Conference against the North Carolina Tar Heels of the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The 2010 game had Air Force playing Georgia Tech. The Falcons beat the Yellow Jackets, 17-14.

The Tar Heels are playing in its fourth consecutive bowl game, the school’s longest streak since a five-game run from 1979-1983.

North Carolina is coming into the game on a down note, having only won a single game against Duke after becoming bowl eligible with their sixth win on October 29.

If the Tar Heels win the game, their achieve their fourth straight eight-win season.

The Tigers of Missouri won four of their last five games after starting off a disappointing 3-4. Missouri beat Texas for the first time in head coach Gary Pinkel’s tenure, 17-5.

Shreveport, Louisiana is not a stranger for Missouri. The Tigers are playing there for the third time since 2005 due to the fact that the Big 12 had eight-bowl eligible teams for the league’s seven bowl games. Missouri was pushed out of the top seven spots despite the fact it earned wins over Iowa State, Texas and Texas A&M.

Missouri’s offense is led by QB James Franklin, a sophomore, who completed 63% of his attempts with only 10 interceptions. During the season, he had an interception-free streak of 123 in a row.

The Tar Heels offense is led by  WR Dwight Jones who led the ACC in receptions with 79 and was tied for the league lead with 11 touchdown catches with 11. Also on offense is RB Giovani Bernard a big-play runner who averages 5.4 yards per carry and totaled 1,222 yards rushing.

Butch Davis is out as head football coach at North Carolina due to an NCAA investigation into improper benefits and academic misconduct which has damaged the school’s reputation.

Davis’ firing comes just nine days before the start of preseason practices.

Davis had changed the culture of the North Carolina Tar Heels football by compiling a 28-23 record in four years after taking the program over from John Bunting. He had the program competing for ACC championships and bowl bids.

But then came the NCAA investigation into former assocaite head coach John Blake, who has been accused of trying to steer players to late NFL agent Gary Wichard.
